Riassunto: In 1980, Rob's life became entwined in the midst of another clandestine operation with one key difference. That operation did not fail. It was alleged that the Russian KGB codenamed their operation "Stingray" or "Operation Stingray." "Stingray" made it possible for the former Soviet Union and more specifically the Russian Navy to know in real time the coordinates of our "Fast Attack" Class and "Boomer Class" submarine fleet.
I served on active duty as a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman from 1967-1970. My duty stations included three naval hospitals and overseas assignments aboard a submarine tender, and on the battlefield with detachments of the 3rd and 5th U.S. Marines in Vietnam. I was assigned to a Marine squad in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, during a Studies and Observation Group (S.O.G.) mission code-named "Sunrise" on February 23, 1970.
Following service in the Naval Reserves and my honorable discharge, I completed the degree of Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health at the University of Georgia, in Athens, Georgia. My civil service included Mare Island Naval Shipyard in 1980, which formed the basis for STINGRAY. I retired as the Manager of Environmental Health Programs for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 2008, after 20 years of service.
